Here are Broadband Technology Report's top 10 stories of 2017, as chosen by you, our readers. Besides being the most-viewed stories on our site this year, these also indicate what was most important and/or interesting to cable's tech community in 2017.

This year's top 10s were a mix of feature stories, news items and video. Not surprisingly, DOCSIS 3.1 dominated the top 10 just as it did last year, followed by MoCA. Interestingly, several of this year's top stories weren't actually from this year; a few are from 2015, and one was written back in 2014. Not sure what that's about, but apparently they still resonate.

The Top 10:

These honorable mentions just barely missed the top 10, but all are important topics in their own right. They range from feature stories to news and our perennially popular Diamond Technology Reviews. This year's honorable mentions don't show any particular pattern, but rather form an interesting mix of topics.
